anyone into herbal teas?

I stopped drinking soda and for a while was drinking half water and half juice cause my daughter, "the juice bandit" would always hog all my juice and babies aren't suppose to drink 100% juice. So then me and my wife discovered that herbal teas are ok for babies and you don't have to stick to the "one cup a day" rule with it so we got some tea.

We'll take a big jug of water and fill it up with filtered water and then dump it in a pot. Throw in a bunch of Tazo passion decaf tea and decaf green tea, then squeeze in two lemons and honey and a tad of sugar. When it's done it won't fill the jug all the way to the top due to evaporation while it was boiling so we fill the rest with cranberry juice and then chill. It's soooooooooo good. I'm hooked.

Any good decaf teas you can recommend?

lots of water will give you energy potential you forget you have. I guess it's worth mentioning that diet sodas are even worse for you than regular soda.

Too much tea can give you kidney stones fyi. If you like tea check out Teavana if they have one in a mall near you.

I've tried some of the herbal teas and have yet to find one that I can drink without gagging so stick to my 2-3 cups of coffee (black and strong), a glass of OJ and some seltzer water, flavored or otherwise. Then there is that single beer/day. Of course, iced tea and water in between times. I'll occasionally go 'off the wagon' with a Sprite or if I really feel the need for danger in my life, a Pepsi

Be careful drinking too much seltzer, sodium bicarbonate breaks down the calcium in your bones.

That's only a content of Alka- Seltzer. Seltzer water is just carbonated water. Carbonation is just liquid carbon dioxide..

I absolutely LOVE the herbal, lemon zinger by Celestial Seasonings tea. It is soothing and highly aromatic and has this unique lemony I find very refreshing especially after a long day at work. Must try - http://www.dailycuppacoffee.com/cele...ger-25-per-box

Lots of water, recommended is one half of your body weight in ounces. Tea, straight up, sometimes with Splenda, coupla cups of coffee in the morning. Having kidney stones will push you to drink water, I passed a small one a month ago, no one wants to do this. One in the hospital for these, Carbonation is not a friend to me.
